Glenn's Book of Quotes Number Thirty-Four

"The soul is no traveller; the wise man stays at home, and when his necessities, his duties, on any occasion call him from his house, or into foreign lands, he is at home still, and shall make men sensible by the expression of his countenance, that he goes the missionary of wisdom and virtue, and visits cities and men like a sovereign, and not like an interloper or a valet." -- Ralph Waldo Emerson
Therefore, if you should see me somewhere upon the spokes of the universe, far from my home at its hub, then do seek me out for my wisdom and virtue. I shall endeavor to be generous.
